Can Grub.conf be edited from the non linux OS

I know I can dig up my rescue CD and edit grub.conf ; and I know I can boot FC8 and edit grub.conf, but is there a way to edit grub.conf from the Windows booted OS system.

Reason - the pc is remote to me and managed with vnc. I want to boot both OS depending on the situation and I ahve not figured out how to get vnc to show me the grub menu before an OS loads.

if your fedora install is on an ext3 partition, installing explore2fs on the remote computer might be the way to go. I have however never used it so I don't know if it allows read/write access to all levels of the filesystem.
